The Jules Verne burns up on re-entry.

Europe's first ATV (Automated Transfer Vehicle) cargo ship, The Jules Verne burns up during a planned reentry after completing it's ISS (international space station mission). Quite a beautiful thing to watch I think. Being an automated ship there is no need for crew.
